country, the mississippi river. it's in major flood stage. that's always a big deal for the barge traffic and other economic concerns, too. that river is cresting near st. louis. the river that we're now worried about is more of the illinois river. it's going to crest in peoria on tuesday. that's where we could have more destruction done and millions of dollars and south of there as we go into wednesday. again, the mississippi, it's cresting now just north of st. louis. and it should go down from here. looking at the weather pattern over the west, trying to think about, you know, what's interesting, what's going to happen, what concerns do we have. it's really going to be a very quiet weather period. we'll have morning clouds to deal with in a few coastal areas of california. other than that, here's a map that's given to us by our government estimating the precipitation in the week ahead. the green shows you where it will be light rain around the country. the blue and darker blues and purple shows you where the heavy rain will be. look at the west from california to oregon to washington, over the next week, you'll be hard pressed to any raindrops at all besides maybe next weekend in the cascades. i mean, it's really going to be a dry week as it goes into the end of april.
